Nigerian military arrests Boko Haram’s cameraman

Boko Haram

The Nigerian military on Monday said it arrested a terrorist photographer in a community in Adamawa state.

The man, who was arrested alongside other terrorists, specialises in taking photographs and shooting videos of the terrorists’ activities in the North Eastern part of Nigeria.

They were arrested during a patrol, surveillance and raid operations to track fleeing terrorists in Adamawa environs.

The spokesperson for the Defence Headquarters, Chris Olukolade, said four of the terrorists, who tried to escape in an SUV jeep with a digital camera and weapons have been taken into custody.

As the Nigerian troops continue to sustain their offensive against terrorists in North-Eastern Nigeria, more arrests are being made and terrorists are being killed, officials said.

Mr. Olukolade said the arrested terrorists are helping ongoing investigations in one of the military barracks in the country.
